Hurricane/Tropical storm Florance is finally leaving the area. We've been under hurricane watches, tropical storm warnings, tornado watches, and flash flood warnings for the better part of 4 days now. Not good conditions to go out in search of photos. Fortunately, there was no real storm damage in the immediate area, so I am thankful for that. The lesson is when stuck inside, photograph inside! Here are my 5 gourds, all friendly in the pecan bowl from day 196 on July 15. This is what you can do with a failed lathe project! I hope you've enjoyed these colorful vegetables (or whatever they are)! I hope to get out and photograph something OUTSIDE tomorrow.
